Typhoon Haiyan | Crisis in the Philippines
As you read this, Typhoon Haiyan, the largest tropical cyclone recorded on earth in 2013, is making landfall in the central Philippines.
Winds have been clocked up to 235 mph—the most powerful storm to make landfall in history—and an estimated 10 million people are in the path of the category 5 storm.
The potential for loss of life is unfathomable.
During this time, World Help will be monitoring the needs and will form a suitable response through our network of partners on the ground.
But right now, we must pray.
Pray for divine protection for those unable to escape Haiyan’s power. Virtually nothing can withstand winds over 200 mph. Yet while hope may seem bleak, there is room for the miraculous—and that is what we must make appeal for. World Help firmly believes that our prayers can save lives.
Pray for a swift response from the international community. Lives will depend on it. As soon as possible, these victims will need medical supplies, food, clean water, shelter, and so much more.
Pray for comfort as millions suffer the beating of this merciless force. Many will lose everything they know—loved ones, homes, lifetimes of work. Right now, in the eye of the storm, there are innocent children and families in need of supernatural comfort. Likewise, in the days to come, they will face the unimaginable and we must continue to respond with prayer.
As you pray, please spread the word on your social media networks or through email. Lives are hanging in the balance . . . every prayer counts.
